The staff and children at Portland House took part in National Fitness Day on Wednesday 27 September. They came to nursery dressed in leisure or sports attire to participate in the challenge to ‘Get your kids moving for 10 minutes at 10am’.
This continued throughout the day with the children demonstrating a wide variety of moves and physical skills. Starting with warm up preparations to get our bodies gently moving through bending down low, stretching up high exercises and jogging on the spot. We then had lots of fun practising and showing off our skills enjoying team games where the children raced each other by running, hopping, jumping and skipping from the starting line to the finishing post. Sunflowers also did the trim tram trail where they practised their balancing skills. Bluebells had an afternoon at the races in which they were awarded their homemade medals and cheered on by their friends.
